05:20 AM ET 07.25 | Bringing back Santonio Holmes, the top wide receiver playmaker on the market, as an unrestricted free agent is the Jets' No. 1 priority. Sources say the Redskins have also made Holmes their No. 1 priority. Remember how the Jets and Skins fought over Laveranues Coles in 2003? That one got nasty. Holmes is a better player than Coles, so if Daniel Snyder goes all out to get him, this could be better than anything that happens on Dec. 4.

Sanchez or McNabb? Rex or Ratman? Johnson or Snyder? Big bucks vs Huge bucks? Huge bucks will win out over all.

Hey. It's like really early. What happened? I didn't expect new threads for another 45 minutes at least. Or maybe this is an old thread from yesterday that nobody found interesting?

just like every baseball free agent is rumored to be going to the yankees and red sox, so must every football free agent be headed to the redskins. The "Sources", here, are Moss's agents and the intent is to instill some urgency in the Jets when the FA period finally opens.

The Redskins are going nowhere fast...........

Holmes is a better chocie then Edwards but i would love Santana Moss back on the Jets. Can't believe they ever let him go :(

Dan Snyder is the opposite of Midas - everything he touches turns to feces. I have a strong dislike of the Jets but it's Holmes choice; would he rather get paid crazy dollars or play for a winning team? It's a clear choice.

Actually, their stats are fairly close as far as their average seasons. Holmes has the slight edge in yards and YPR on average.

Santana gets hurt too often and doesn't make plays in the middle of the field.

So much for Danny Boy showing some restraint on the free agent spending. That checkbook must be burning a hole in his pocket.

y would holmes choose a team thats going nowhere while the jets have a shot wining a championship

The Dreadfulskins, if they really need a receiver from the Jets, should go after Brad Smith, with his time as a QB in college (he broke Antwaan Randle-El's records in college for total yards as a running QB). He's not getting a real shot in the Jets offense as a regular receiver, he's a dynamic kick returner and, as a former QB, will have that extra instinct to become a 'security blanket' by anticipating what the QB has to deal with.

Just my thought.
